Like all small bands, our biggest problem when we do live gigs, is getting some kind of respectable sound balance. We never seem to have enough time to do a decent sound check, and so we often feel that he overall live sound is not as good as we want. One possible solution to this is to get a small digital mixer which will save 'scenes'. In other words, - when he have got a decent balance, maybe with some simple effects, like a bit of reverb or eq, then then the mixer can take a 'snapshot' of this mix, which can then be recalled later on - at the next gig or whatever! There are various mixers out there which can do scene recall and we'd like one which is fairly simple to use, not to heavy for carting around, but has scene recall preferably including fader levels.
If you know of such a mixer could you let us know (below) - particularly if it's one you have experience of yourself.
